Q570. Gold Foil on Copper Menuki of Cranes
Q570. Crane menuki, each about 1.7 x 4 cm. These menuki are copper covered in a gold foil, not a gold wash; I’m no authority on the matter but I suspect this is somewhat unusual. On the back of one is a small paper label with 3 characters: the 1st reads crane, not sure about the last 2. In excellent condition (no damage to the gold) and in a fitted box. $795.
